CRRC thanks voters

On November 27th, the city of Camden acknowledged the defeat of the referendum vote regarding the recreation facility by passing a resolution accepting those results. The Camden Recreation Referendum Coalition (CRRC) extends congratulations and gratitude to every voter who made that happen and who confirmed our belief in the democratic process. We reflect with great satisfaction on staying the course, facing every challenge, and fighting boldly and assertively to let your voices be heard and to prove that the system works. You did it, and we thank you.

GOP must change

Nobody here in Kershaw County or anywhere else in the country would rationally assert that President Obama's victory last month transformed the United States into a one-party country. After all, Obama won by a skinny percentage (though by a wider margin in the antiquated Electoral College), and the U.S. House of Representatives is still controlled by the GOP, as are a majority of governorships. However, the protocols of presidential politics are creating a more difficult path for Republicans to win the White House unless the party steps back and takes a fresh look at itself.

Command presence matters

A Nov. 16, 2012, op-ed by Lucian Truscott IV published in The New York Times declares that our post-World War II military leadership has traded true fighting spirit for "talk shows and photo spreads" and "military-spec business suits" and, therefore, has failed to succeed in battle since "the stalemated Korean War." Truscott's linkage between alleged military failures and a general officer population of "strutting military peacocks" is readily contradicted by the two men he invokes, George Patton and Lucian Truscott Jr., his own grandfather.

Enter Prince Charming

Good things come to those who wait. And in this story, the good things are truly wonderful and have emerged as being undeniably worth the wait. At times, this "wait" was home to several Mr. Wrongs and one or two Prince Charming wannabees. But over the years, the reservoir of patience reached a high and its depth paid off in an unexpected way. You see, my sister, two years my junior, is getting married this weekend. Her patience is the victor here, and life, the joy decided to happen, as she was busy making other plans.
